Today Critical Exposure is participating in Do More 24 - a giving competition - and they need our help to turn $10 into $5,000.
Critical Exposure teaches youth how to use the power of photography and their own voices to become effective advocates for school reform and social change. CE students use photography to document their experiences, and then use those photos to create the change they need to succeed in school and in life.
This year, CE students who are working to address the school-to-prison pipeline were featured on the front page of the Washington Post. Another set of students wanted to address the fact they lived in a food desert, and used photos to advocate for funds to build a community garden - and won $50,000! Yet another group of students felt that their school suffered from racial tension, and used photography to advocate for an Ethnic Studies class to be added to the school's curriculum - that class begins in the fall.
On June 6, CE is participating in Do More 24, a 24-hour giving competition. Specifically, they're trying to win the "Most Donations by Noon" award - with a prize of $5,000! Will you join me in giving $10 before noon Today? All funds will put cameras into the hands of youth who need a form of expression and a vehicle for improving their lives and the lives of their peers.
